In Europe, EDPR added 289 MW to its consolidated wind installed capacity to reach 4,266 MW.

2012 marked two major milestones in EDPR’s history with the completion of its first wind farms in Italy and the addition of its first ever solar photovoltaic plants.

Portfolio growth in Europe came largely from outside Iberia, with 113 MW (22%).
Romania saw growth in both wind and solar installations, with 26 MW added in wind and 39 MW in solar PV. With this achievement EDPR consolidated its top tier position in the Romanian renewable energy market.

EDPR commissioned its first wind farm in Italy during fourth quarter of 2012. The 20 MW wind farm is located in the town of Villa Castelli, in the Apulia region. In the same quarter, EDPR completed its second wind farm, Pietragalla, located in the Basilicata region, for another 20MW.

In France, EDPR completed the extension of the Prouville wind farm by adding 8 MW.

EDPR completed 110 MW in Spain, achieving a total installed capacity in Spain of over 2.3 GW while consolidating its market leader position in Catalonia, with the addition of 48 MW and surpassing 300 MW in total installed capacity in this autonomous region. December 31st 2012 marked the end date for the completion of awarded capacity under the pre- assignation registry. EDPR was able to successfully complete 100% of its projects in time, ensuring that they benefit from the current remuneration scheme.

Through ENEOP in Portugal, a consortium to develop 1.2 GW in which EDPR holds a 40% stake, 64 MW were added in 2012 to the total 390 MW attributable to EDPR at year-end. Moreover, EDPR increased the capacity via overpowering of an existing wind farm by 2 MW.

In North America, EDPR reached a total installed capacity of 3,637 MW, representing a 17% average annual growth since 2008.

During the year, EDPR completed the Marble River wind farm in the north-eastern area of the New york state with a total capacity of 215 MW.

The project has a 10-year Renewable Energy Credits (REC) contract with NySERDA, which provides visibility to the sale of its renewable energy. Furthermore, it was awarded by the US Treasury, a Cash Grant, for an amount of 122 million US dollars (received in the first weeks of January).

In Brazil, EDPR currently runs three operating wind farms totaling 84 MW, fully under enewables energy incentive programs. In 2012, the 70 MW Tramandaí wind farm, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, had its first complete operational year, delivering more than 200 GWh in total production. Tramandaí has a 20-year PPA, under the PROINFRA program, with Eletrobrás, the State owned electricity holding.
